Does anyone know of any songs that you can dance either a chacha or tango. thanks in advance.
Gotan Project's "Santa Maria?"
I think you can both tango and cha cha to Lady GaGa's Bad Romance
Tempo-wise, cha cha and tango have very similar, if not identical speeds. It all depends on the beat.
A tango Bad Romance might need a little altering/live playing/arranging to make the beat stronger.
Good one! I've never even thought of that as cha...
I danced a group tango-chacha to Dance With Me (Debelah Morgan), what feels like eons ago. Various versions of Sway With Me could also work. Any tango with strong percussion could probably work as a cha cha. I also recall hearing some tango remixes that were done as chacha, though don't know names. If you have any editing skills, you could possibly find both versions of such a song, and find a good point to transition from one to the next.
What about Duffy's song Mercy? I'd have to listen to it for tango and cha, but know you can do a whole lot of songs to it.
thanks for the replies, much appreciated. will research the recommendations!
Reflejo de la Luna by Alacran. You can find it on iTunes.
excellent! thanks everyone for some great tango/chacha. need it for a performance for next year.
You can try looking at
"Die Another Day" Madonna
"Let it Rock" Kevin Rudolf
"The Way I Are" Timbaland
Or another Gotan Project song: "Whatever Lola Wants."
Kriminaltango by Lea Laven. Brief clip audible here: http://www.last.fm/music/Lea+Laven/40+Unohtumatonta+Laulua Try Carmen as well.
